    So Good! Loved it! Now I'm growing my basil at home so I will always have fresh basil for it.

    I decided to try this is now a weekly meal, and dare I say tastes even better as leftovers for lunch the next day. Instead of grilled cheese, I serve with either warmed crusty bread or I tear pitas, sprinkle with olive oil and sea salt and warm in oven, yummmmm
